It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jean Dalziel (nee: Robbins), recently of Pincher Creek, Alberta who peacefully left this world surrounded by her loving family while receiving care at the Pincher Creek Hospital on April 15, 2018. Jean was blessed with 90 years of a wonderful life.
Jean was born on April 13, 1928 in Anston, Yorkshire, England to Edgar and Kate Robbins. She blossomed into a beautiful and graceful young lady who captured the heart of a dashing military man, Heath Dalziel, and after a whirlwind courtship, they pledged their love in holy matrimony on June 4, 1949. Jean was further blessed with a family of her own where she demonstrated the compassion and inspiration she was known for her entire life. In 1974, the family immigrated to Canada.
Jean enjoyed life and had many interests: she truly shone on the ballroom dance floor, modeled clothing in various fashion shows, enjoyed her aerobic exercises, long walks, her membership with the Blairmore Legion and volunteering at the York Creek Lodge, and baking special treats for her family.
A devoted wife, nurturing mother, cherished grandmother and great grandmother, Jean’s memory and her love will live forever in the hearts and minds of her family and dearest friends.
She is survived by her beloved husband, Heath Dalziel of Pincher Creek, AB; her devoted children, Barry (Carole) Dalziel of Surrey, BC, Stuart (Louise) Dalziel of Hillcrest, AB and Myra Dalziel of Nova Scotia; her cherished grandchildren, Sarah Dalziel, Emily (Aaron) Wheeler, Paul Walters and Tracy Walters; precious great grandchildren, Jayce Dalziel, Simon Burke, Cruze Aubin, Elle Walters and Rylee Walters; her siblings, David (Valerie) Foulds and Sheila Foulds of Yorkshire, England; and numerous nieces and nephews and extended family both here and in England. She was predeceased by her parents, Kate & Edgar Robbins.
The gathering of family and friends celebrating Jean’s life was held on Friday, April 20, 2018 at Fantin's Funeral Chapel in Blairmore, AB where fond memories, tributes from the heart and refreshments were shared.
On behalf of the family, we wish to express our gratitude for the caregivers at Vista Village and all who made our mother’s life wonderful. She appreciated your acts of kindness and dedication.
